FX's 'What We Do in the Shadows' Returns This July


What We Do in the Shadows: The Undead Laughter Returns For Fifth Season

Are you ready for another 'afterlife crisis'? Prepare for another hilarious instalment of FX's beloved vampire mockumentary 'What We Do in the Shadows', set to premiere worldwide on July 13. This season promises a unique blend of hijinks as fresh as blood from Nadja's club sprinklers and familiar fanged humour that fans have come to love.

The spotlight this season falls on Guillermo, the long-suffering human familiar, as he finally ascends to the much-coveted vampire ranks. Yet, as he grapples with his new undead identity, viewers can anticipate a treasure trove of comedic moments rooted in Guillermo's baptism by fire into the world of vampirism.

The show, a brainchild of Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, offers a delightful and hilarious glimpse into the lives of four vampire roommates—Nandor (Kayvan Novak), Laszlo (Matt Berry), Nadja (Natasia Demetriou), and Colin Robinson (Mark Proksch)—as they navigate their way through the modern day. With the help of Guillermo (Harvey Guillén) and their vampire bureaucrat acquaintance, The Guide (Kristen Schaal), every episode is a laughter-filled journey into the above-ground underworld of Staten Island.

Fans of the show can look forward to more of Nandor's classic expression—"f***ing guy"—which is one of the most popular running gags in the series. Actor Kayvan Novak's masterful delivery, accentuated by his comical fake accent, is sure to bring more laughter and joy to this new season.
